A vegetarian dish at a bbq needn't be an uninspiring afterthought or just a lame selection of vegetables on a stick and although I'm not a full on vegetarian I don't eat a lot of meat so a veggie option can always be a winner for me.
A veggie burger doesn't have to be potato based or covered in bread crumbs and fried, it's fun to get creative and make your own.
Heat a frying pan with a little olive oil on a medium heat and saute the onion, garlic and peppers for a few minutes until soft.
Set aside to cool.
In a food processor blitz the sprouts until they are roughly chopped
Add the chickpeas, egg, vinegar, turmeric, pepper, cayenne, oregano and tomato puree and pulse until you have a mostly rough mixture.
Spoon the chickpea mixture into a bowl and stir in the cooled onion, peppers, garlic and seeds.
Add the parmesan and almond flour and mix it all together.
Separate the mixture into 4 portions, roll them into balls and flatten into patties either by hand or with a burger mould.
Plate, cover and refrigerate the patties until you wish to cook them.
I like to cook mine on a lightly oiled grill pan for 2 or 3 minutes on each side.
